Saturday saw Paddy add the second race of Paddy’s Millionaire Chase take place and any qualifying backers of FIRST FLOW are now in Monday’s draw for the second spot for the biggest New Year’s bash since Jools Holland pre-recorded his Hootenanny back in August.
In case you haven’t heard Paddy’s going to ring in the New Year – and say good riddance to a frankly rotten 2020 – by splashing out to the tune of £1,000,000 on you, the plucky Paddy Power punter!
Or one of you anyway.
The January blues won’t know what hit them – get all you need to know here.
Now, not wishing to get ahead of ourselves here or anything, but it’s probably a wise and shrewd idea to look ahead right now at what you could get for your seven-figure jackpot prize.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner. https://t.co/PdB00WxYrG

Playstation 5 x 2,227
The next generation of gaming machines are dropping with more bells and whistles than you can shake your gigabyte at – the latest Sony release will make you a fry for breakfast and everything if you ask nicely.
And what’s better than the latest games console – why 2,226 more versions of it at £449 a pop.
One small snag: these things are selling out faster than that local band when they get an early Sunday side stage at Reading.
So you might have to resort to paying the extra £200 or so for it that lads are charging on Ebay for the consoles already.
Donald Trump’s Hair for 19 years
The current, former, or soon-to-be ex-President – who knows which? – was revealed to write-off $70,000 a year – roughly £52,000 – for haircare, which is really something given it looks like a brillo pad dipped in peroxide.
If you feel like using your scalp to scrub the dishes or just want to pay tribute to the man who told us to drink bleach to cure the Coronavirus, you can have this flapping weave perched on your once for almost 20 years if you pocket the million.
Trump took $70,000 in tax deductions for hair care. Experts say that's illegal.
"Such a deduction could potentially constitute criminal tax fraud if the cost of the hairstyling was reimbursed by someone else." https://t.co/Qt8jQz3jeo

444,444 Covid-19 vaccines
With the world and its immunology expert mother working on a vaccine for the global pandemic-causing virus, we’re hoping to get the all-clear to go back to what we enjoyed doing most – staying indoors, talking to as few people as possible and watching TV series for days on end without interruption.
And there have been plenty of, dare we say it, positive stories in recent weeks about different pharmaceutical giants devising their own vaccine for the bug.
Watching Pfizer trample over Moderna to get to 95% success rate with their treatment was the most entertaining thing about the recent international break, truth be told.
Nov 9th- Pfizer vaccine 90% effective
Nov 12th- Sputnik 92% effective
Nov 16th- Moderna 94% effective
Nov 18th- Pfizer 95% effective

And some estimate that an individual course of some vaccines could be as cheap as £2.25, meaning any newly-minted millionaire could stock up to the tune of more than 400,000 tubs of the stuff, though one should do the trick.
Someone who’ll be starting at centre-half for Liverpool very soon
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp must be pulling his neatly-plugged strands out as the defensive injuries mount at Anfield.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are long-term casualties, while Joe Matip is only returned from a lengthy absence and youth prospect Rhys Williams left the England u-21 squad this week with a knock.
At the rate they’ll be calling Carra to pull on his boots for an emergency stint – John Terry only has a Chelsea kit, before you ask.
Or they may have to look for an emergency signing from down the leagues. £950k can go a long way in League Two…
